Portrait of D. I. Mendeleyev (signed by subject)

Mendeleyev (1834-1907) formulated the periodic law of the elements. The large cabinet photograph (ca 1894) is of Mendeleyev seated, shown full-length. Stamped on back in Russian, presumably the photographer's stamp. Signed, dated and inscribed by the subject: "A Monsieur le professeur Ramsay Lond. 1894 [Jun.?] hommage respectueux D. I. Mendeleeff."

Photo mounted with gilt edge.
